There are lots of tech meet ups - what's different about Demo?
Demo asks; what are you working on? It's about product ideas, getting feedback and evolving your plans.
If you're working on something, Demo is a great platform to showcase your work and gain invaluable insight. And if you're not, it's a great event to see what others in the city are working on. Be inspired. Get excited.
What is a demo?
A demo is a short, 5 minute talk about a product or idea. That might include a loosely-held concept, a new feature, a simple website or a game-changing internet of things product.
What do you mean by structured Q & A?
To improve the amount (and quality) of feedback for your ideas, the community will be given feedback placards. Example prompt might include; your to-market plans, your business model, your positioning against competition, inspiration etc.
I have an exciting idea, but it's not even a functioning prototype yet - can I still demo?
You certainly can. Demoing your idea will help you know your own thoughts and the Q & A will help you evolve your idea.
I'm happy to share / demo certain aspects of my product, but not others - is this ok?
Sure, we only ask that you demo with what you're comfortable with.
We're not asking anyone for 'none disclosure' and actively encourage discussion. Thus, sensitive and confidential information should be shared mindfully with consideration and by those who have the authority to do so.
What is a Lightning Talk?
A lightning talk is a short 2-3 minute opportunity to share knowledge or insight to the community. For example; a new piece of software that enabled or streamlined your process or an upcoming industry event (to mention but a few).
I don't work in tech or products, but I'd like to come along - can I?
Yes please do. Although the emphasis will be placed on tech products and ideas, you might be able to provide some good feedback from another perspective.
Does it cost anything?
No. The accommodation is kindly provided by DoES Liverpool and event organisers Matt and Tom will provide some refreshments including a few cheeky ales for the drinkers ;)
Can I/we sponsor this event?
Yes. If you feel your offering is a good match for our audience, please get in touch.
